Does the Job

I purchased this controller to control a group of 4 fans in our facility. The installation is straight forward. Really only two minor issues with it. First, the control goes from OFF to FULL then as you rotate the control it goes to its lowest setting. A little backward and odd but workable. The other is that due to the face plate you must place these controls in individual duplex boxes rather than putting in a multi gang box with other controls. Adds to clutter and expense when installing them.

Controlling two fans

Your review: Working just fine. Cut off the reversing switch since, as noted by others, it sticks out too far and will be hit while fan is running.

It runs a little hot.

Your review: This unit controls 3 canarm 60 inch fans and after being on a short time it feels hot to the touch. Maybe thats the nature of the beast. I have had no problems in the month I have had it and would heartily recommend it to a friend.

Fan Controller

Your review: Seems to be working just fine = variable speed, reversible, and even a "low" speed adjustment... I would recommend no higher than a medium setting on this deal as it gets covered up by the face plate = not an easy adjustment after installed. Simple instructions for easy installation. If yer fan don't have these options, or is mounted out of reach, this unit will take care of your needs.

useful - could be better

Your review: Kit is complete and directions included are clear. Controller works well. I thought it would be convenient to have the reversing switch and speed regulator in one unit. I use this with one fan the Canarm fan CP56F/R cons 1- reversing switch has a "light action" and is easy to switch accidentally (from froward to reverse mode) when turning the fan on and off or adjusting the speed. 2 - Fan is not silent with this controller. There is a audible hum, not bad, but audible. I had set up the fan with a large high quality variable voltage regulator for testing before the controller arrived and the fan was silent. Now with this controller it makes some noise. I would give 5 stars if the fan was silent

Perfect Controller

Your review: This controller is PERFECT!!! I love the internal adjustments to pre-set the high and low end of the variable speed. That way your variable speed is really YOUR VARIABLE SPEED, with total control forward and reverse. Dwight

Not bad...tight install

Your review: Easy to use, easy to install. A tight fit in a regular 4-inch square box with a 5/8 plaster-ring.
